The basic objective of the research was to generalize the results obtained by the simulation model of the phosphorus system in studying eutrophication problems for different water bodies, The phosphorus model had been originally applied to the Lake Balaton (Hungary), and then to other water bodies – Ivan'kovskoe Reservoir, Lake Kubenskoe, Lake Uvildy (Russia), Lake Kuortaneenjarvi, Lake Tuusulanjarvi, Lake Kotojarvi (Finland), South-East part of Finnish Gulf. An analysis of the combined simulation data for water bodies studied by the model allows us to estimate features of phosphorus changeability and its general load taking into account an external phosphorus input plus an internal phosphorus cycling into the water ecosystem.
